FIND - The Faculty Information Delivery Service
ILLiad Request Form
The Faculty Information Delivery Service (FIND) makes it easy for UNC-CH law faculty members to obtain a variety of library and research resources. Simply click on the link to the ILLiad form above to make your request. From books in the Law Library's collection to items that must be ordered through Interlibrary Loan, you can now request them on one simple form. When you send your requests, the Law Library will deliver to your mailbox:
- Journal articles, cases, or other documents photocopied from our own collection or retrieved from Westlaw, Lexis, HeinOnline, or other online databases.
- Books and other materials obtained from our collection and from other libraries on the UNC-CH campus.
- Materials from Duke University, North Carolina State University, North Carolina Central University, and other libraries via Interlibrary Loan. (Please note that materials from other libraries have limited loan periods and that the Law Library cannot waive fines from these libraries.)
To check the progress of your request or to report a problem, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Frequently Asked Questions about the FIND Service
Who may use the FIND Service?
All regular, clinical, or visiting law faculty, and all law school deans and administrators. Secretaries are also permitted to make research requests on your behalf.
When will I receive my documents?
Requests (other than Interlibrary Loan material) will usually be filled within 24 to 48 hours and deliveries made at least once a day. When materials must be obtained through Interlibrary Loan, the delivery date will depend upon how quickly the lending library sends the materials.
Can FIND accommodate requests for a long list of materials?
Certainly, but please note that multiple requests may take longer than usual, particularly if some items must be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan.
What happens if the materials I want aren't available on campus?
The FIND Service will notify you that we are forwarding the request to the Interlibrary Loan Manager, who will promptly process your request.
How do I return materials obtained through FIND?
Just as you normally return Law Library materials: drop them off at circulation. To help us maintain our borrowing privileges with other libraries, please be sure to comply with all due dates and recall notices. The Law Library cannot waive fines from other university libraries.
Can FIND supply copies for my course pack?
No. The FIND Service supports law faculty research; we are not adequately staffed to meet classroom needs or other customized copying. But we can assist in locating materials needed for course packets.
Can my research assistant use the FIND Service?
No, but research assistants can use the campus delivery service, which is available to all UNC students. Also, any of the Law Library's reference librarians can help your RA with strategies for finding relevant materials.
